The Untitled Update - 07/21
For real though, I really got sucked into the collab whirlpool this year, and TUP has suffered for it. Part of it, admittedly, has been some of the writer's block I've had with this episode. As irritating as the delays were with TUP 2.3, it definitely gave me time to think through the plot and planning out each scene. In that regard, maybe it is good to slow my pace on working on the episodes since it tends to lead to a better final product. For comparison, compare the high quality of TUP 2.3 to the mediocre, but quickly made episodes from Season 1.
Also, it's nice that the collabs I joined back in the winter and spring are finally coming out! Going through my videos again, I only now realized that there was a six-month dry spell where I wasn't uploading any videos. My subscribers may have thought I was taking a break, but let me assure you that I was definitely keeping myself busy! With the Michael Rosen collab and the I M Meen collab out, this should be enough content to keep you entertained going into August.
Between the 8(!) collabs I joined this year,
definitely not joining so many next year, be warned now before you invite me, the remaining five should be coming out during the last five months of the year (August, September, October, November, December). This'll be especially handy since I'm going to be job hunting once again, which unsurprisingly is going to take up a lot of my time, but at least there'll be new content to keep you guys entertained.
With all the chaos and busyness in my personal life and the collabs I overcommitted myself to this year and the writer's block I've had, it's probably better to just rip the band-aid off now to say that TUP 2.4 is (probably) not going to be coming out this year. While I obviously can't always control what my personal or work lives are going to be like, I at least control what collabs I sign up for, and if you were super excited to see the next episode of TUP, I think I owe you an apology for being so tardy. As mentioned previously, I'm going to try to limit how many I join next year. But hey, at least the wait is going to be a lot easier than it was for TUP 2.3. At least this time, I've been providing additional content to tide you guys over!
